AFL Victoria will celebrate our game’s rich multicultural community this month, as part of the 2019 Cultural Diversity Week festivities from March 16-24.
Proudly presented by the Victorian Multicultural Commission, with the support from the Victorian Government, Cultural Diversity Week is Victoria’s largest multicultural celebration, featuring a week-long program of exciting events and activities that invites Victorians to embrace cultural diversity.
Currently in its 17th year, Cultural Diversity Week ‘Proud to belong – Your Generation Your Stories’ is a fantastic way to celebrate the everyday diversity of Victorians and reflect on what gives us all a sense of belonging in our multicultural community.
With over 54,000 multicultural participants involved in Australian Football across Victoria last year, Cultural Diversity Week is an important part of celebrating these participants as well as the wider community.
Sharing stories and highlighting a number of multicultural contributors who make our game what it is allows for multicultural participants to feel involved and appreciated, as well as educating and celebrating our games rich cultural diversity.
